Children in Need 2020
We enjoyed dressing up today in yellow! Look at our colouring competition winners too!
Indoor fine motor development
We have been strengthening our finger muscles this week by stretching elastic bands over boards and pinching pegs onto a peg board.
We are super excited to meet all of you. We have filmed a short video to show you our Early Years environment - this has changed slightly since the previous videos. We hope you enjoy watching this with your child and that they are very excited to come and see us and their new school next week.
Here you will find some challenge videos for you to watch with your child. These are challenges for your child to keep practising over the holidays to ensure they are school ready come September. We have 4 different challenge videos for different areas of the curriculum:
1. Self care (being as independent as possible with toileting, hand-washing etc.)
2. Number (recognition and counting)
3. Writing (fine motor activities, pencil grip and drawing)
4. Reading (sharing and retelling stories)
Please see the school ready checklist which is a document attached below. This, along with the challenge videos will give you an idea of things you can do with your child over summer to make sure they are as independent as possible and ready to start their learning journey at Torrisholme Primary School in September. Please do not panic if your child can not do all of these - we celebrate that every child is different and we can guarantee that they will all have the best time at school and be supported in any way they need!
If you would like to send us some photos or videos of your child completing these challenges - we would love to see! Email us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
